I use to make a pineapple upside down cake in my electric skillet. I just forgot about it. It always got comments and I am pretty sure I used a cake mix. I will have to look at Martha's recipe....
That face is just plain scary (o:

I never liked this when I was a kid, and then I tried it again as an adult, and wondered what I was thinking? It's delicious.

I usually race to the chocolate desserts when given the choice, but this cake would make me think twice for sure! It's beautiful!!

RosieP said...

I always try to make sure I have all the ingredients in my cupboard so I can just throw one of these together, delicious, I put cherries in the middle of the pineapple too. Yours looks scrummy well done
